Many people ponder over this question what exactly are awareness bracelets? What can be said in reply to this is that you must have noticed rubber bracelets on the hands of many people standing in the queue at the grocery store sporting a bright colored bracelet or even in your office wearing something similar. They are bracelets which stand and support a cause. That is why they are awareness bracelets.
These rubber bracelets are also called silicon bracelets. They emerged out as a concept of Lance Armstrong Foundation which supports cancer and education as a cause. The color of the bracelets is yellow which again is derived from the color of Lance Armstrong’s jersey which is of the same color. This organization sold these bracelets and made a huge amount of money that went into the funds of the various organization associated with this organization.
So we see that these awareness bracelets can be used to raise funds as well. The best part about these bracelets is that anyone irrespective of their gender or age can wear them and support a cause. Another thing is that these are reasonably priced too. This makes it affordable for anyone and everyone. This adds to their popularity.
Some people treat as a passion as they are genuinely dedicated to a cause for a long time. The moment they get a chance to support the cause they grab it to spread consciousness among others. There are various rubber bracelets which support many a cause. Like for anti racism prevalent in U.K. black and white, and pink colored bracelet which stands for breast cancer. The engraved messages on these bracelets make everyone aware of the purpose of wearing a bracelet like that.
The prominence of an awareness movement like this comes from the fact that people are ready to support these above mentioned causes. It is really a personal matter what they will stand for but this definitely brings people from different race, creed, religion and gender together for a cause. Hence awareness bracelets are more than what you may ask for.

Awareness bracelets are wristbands made of silicone. They are used as a symbol of awareness and are distributed to promote awareness for several causes. They come in a variety of colors. They are bright enough to attract people’s attention.
The Origin of Awareness Bracelets
Awareness bracelets started becoming popular in the year 2004. An organization called Lance Armstrong Foundation stated the trend of awareness bracelets. These bracelets were yellow silicone bracelets and they spread awareness against breast cancer and support the researches conducted on breast cancer.
This trend was carried forward and adopted as a tool to spread awareness for many other campaigns. Silicone bracelets were used to promote causes like ‘Make Poverty History’, BBC’s ‘Beat Bullying’ campaign.
This trend has not died down. Silicone bracelets are used by many organizations/ charities to promote several social causes for the betterment of the society. This has taken a universal dimension. International organizations as well as national ones and even local clubs use silicone awareness bracelets.
Awareness Bracelets and Fund Raising
Awareness bracelets are also used for the purpose of raising funds for many different causes. This has grown as an extremely popular trend. Many schools follow this in order to raise funds for sports. The names of teams are written on these silicone bracelets. The costs incurred for the purpose of training are raised by selling these bracelets.
Schools, churches sometimes use this method to raise funds in this way to support transport expenses and expedition expenses. They also purchase items that are needed in churches. Some groups raise money by selling silicone awareness bracelets to take part in various competitions that are held at the state level or for that matter, even in the national level.
Not just breast cancer, these bracelets are used to raise funds for many other malignant diseases. Nonprofit organizations or charities even use them to promote awareness against multiple sclerosis, AIDS, diabetes. Animal rights organizations also motivate people against the cruelty and unjust treatment done upon animals with the help of these bracelets.
These silicone bracelets are medium sized and are flexible. These are the most affordable tokens that can be distributed for fund raising purposes. It is highly unprofitable to distribute tokens that are expensive by themselves. The purpose will be lost in that case. However, the silicone awareness bracelets at school and church levels are sold at extremely affordable prices.
